If you decide to take a full-day field trip to the great plains of Northern Serbia, take a good night’s rest as we’ll start from Belgrade in the morning hours. On our way to the city of Novi Sad, we stop first at Pecinci village, some 30 km from Belgrade, to visit a unique Museum of Bread which has exhibits portraying the cult-like significance of bread in the cultures of the region. We are on our way to Mt. Excursion with private guide in Belgrade. Fruska Gora. It rises from the endless fields of Vojvodina, covered with orchards, vineyards and linden tree forests. One of the seven National Parks in Serbia, Fruska Gora is also a treasury of Serbian culture and history.
A 30-minute drive from Pecinci, takes us to Krusedol Monastery, the oldest and most important of the 17 monasteries on Fruska Gora. If there is enough time, we can also visit Grgeteg Monastery, just 4 km away. We have to leave behind the enchanting landscape and head on to the town of Sremski Karlovci, once the capital of Serbian cultural life. As soon as we arrive, after a 20-minute drive from Krusedol Monastery, we will go sightseeing. We will visit the Patriarch Court, St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, Old Grammar School… By this time, we will be in a good mood for lunch. There is a beautiful restaurant on the very bank of the Danube, with excellent fish specialties and local cuisine dishes.
When we finish our meal, we will visit the Honey and Wine Museum and taste some very special wines of the Fruska Gora region. Tour in Belgrade. At this point, we will be quite ready to “conquer” the Petrovaradin fortress which guards the town of Novi Sad. This “Gibraltar of the Danube”, as it is called, is one of the largest fortresses in Europe, with most of it built in the 18th century. We will have coffee at the terrace offering magnificent panoramic view of Novi Sad and its surroundings. With more than 15 km of underground passages, this fortress hides countless secrets and lures adventurers.
The stroll along the streets of Novi Sad would be next on our agenda. The neat baroque edifices in the centre filled with old taverns and inns, galleries, cobble stone paved streets, give Novi Sad an aura of times past, tranquility and harmony. After such a fulfilling day, it would only be fair to treat ourselves to a bit of free time to wander through the city on our own. Try to discover and recognize the abundance of cultural and ethnic diversity that Novi Sad cherishes and preserves. When we gather together again, it will be time to return to Belgrade, which will take us an hour if we use the motorway.
